Vaccination 60+ (Impfen 60+) is a pharma-independent, scientific cooperative project of the research initiative InfectControl 2020 within the framework of the funding measure "Zwanzig20 - Partnerschaft für Innovation" (2020 - Partnership for Innovation) of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Together, psychologists and communication scientists from the University of Erfurt, designers from the Lindgrün GmbH agency and medical doctors and health economists from the University Hospital Jena and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) are developing strategies and health communication measures to counteract the declining vaccination rate in the 60+ age group. As an intervention study in the model region of Thuringia, Vaccination 60+ (Impfen 60+) uses target group-specific media to inform about the risks of sepsis (blood poisoning) and to provide information about preventive influenza and pneumococcal vaccinations.
